The in-tank "filter" is usually just a screen. Normally it is possible to snag the tube with the fuel gauge, but a wire is quite a bit easier. You can also remove them by unscrewing the fitting where the fuel line connects to the tank and pull it through there. I would also - or instead- put an actual inline filter outside the tank. I never mess with the fuel pick-up inside the tank.
